Re: Vacuum pump style repair system

I find a screw injector more accurately controllable, just my humble opinion of course as I have done thousands of good repairs using the Delta spring loaded one.

You could upsell it as a steel reinforced repair, only kidding.

Re: Vacuum pump style repair system

I have trained people on the use of the vp5000 I would not buy one, using compressed air to mover a liquid makes no sense to me, I suggest that your skills have more to do with the quality of your repairs than your kit does.

Re: What is the best Repair kit ?

Nomad, in testing we have found a damage heated can stay shut for over 24 hours without the use of the heat exchanger, I showed this too a couple of seasoned techs only last week, they were shocked.

Re: Accidentally drilling all the way through

There is never a need or a time to drill into the PVB by going through the outer glass, a very big no no as it leaves a horrible scar.

Practise more and buy the Delta slide hammer with the built in measuring tool.

I may sound angry but I see way to much of that poor technque over here.

Re: Technique on larger combinations

Are you working outside and more important using a UV shield. Are you flexing the break and where are you flexing, do not use any heat as this will make things harder for you. I get guys to do at least 5 of these larger combinations along with many other style breaks when they are here for training,...

Re: I got a resin problem.

How are you drying out? are you using a UV shield? so many variables, but what I would say is the magnibond resin is certainly not the problem, been using it for years and never had a problem.
